I'll vote for Jacques Pepin and perhaps Lydia and Ina Garten - they really seem to know
what it's all about

While I like many of Ina Garten's recipes, her television show & personality trigger my gag reflex. WAY over the top PHONY. All those dinner parties - especially the "surprise" ones - make me nuts. She's no actor, & neither are her vendors or guests. I wish she'd just stick to cooking & cut all that garbage out.

Now I'm in agreement with ya there,she is a little too waspy for my taste but as far as her dishes go,she's my favorite.

Odd you said that... in person, she is genuine and friendly. As for the format of her show, she is not in control of that. It's the producers!

Who said that nice Jewish girl is "waspy?"

I'm sure she is very nice in person. I just can't stand any of the shows that have "fake" friends, "fake" surprise parties, "fake" vendor visits, etc., etc. It's so "drecky", as my mom would say - lol! I'm sure lots of folks like the show, & I certainly don't mean this as a reflection on them. It's just not my taste at all & so many of the shows have that format now. You'd think with Ina's popularity, she would have some say in her program setup.

In the subject at hand - for the current television chef, I would have to say Emeril. He's knowledgable, entertaining and I've not made a recipe of his yet that hasn't been absolutely foolproof and delicious :o)
